This build may take me a while lol
Your mobo will likely come with several SATA cables, probably 4 of them.

ok, i started this build a few hours ago and have:

1) Installed PSU (No problems here)
2) Installed DVD Drive (No problems here)
3) Installed RAM (No problems here)
4) Added mobo standoff screws to case + added IO panel (No problems)
5) Installed CPU (Think i did correctly)
6) CPU Cooler (This took my about 1 hour lol, so fiddly)

Thats it so far, need to take a break.
Im just worried about static, i have the mobo on top of anti-static bag - on top of box. But im trying to be really careful about it, should i be so worried?
Tried to find somewhere to buy anti-static band/gloves but couldnt.

I was a supervisor in a PCB department for many years and while static is a real issue we never saw it and believe me many people didn't bother with the precautions, the bands very restrictive when trying to work believe me and the foot straps used to fall off all the time. Not that I'm saying you should ever risk it. Just in my personal and professional experience static has never been an issue.
